Welcome to the State of Maine

Office of Information Technology

Project Management Office & Business Process Management

The goal of the PMO is to ensure the success of projects and other process improvement efforts through the selection of the best technical initiatives for the State of Maine's Project Portfolio.  We lead teams of internal and external resources to successful project completion or process improvement through the use of appropriate project management and business process management methodologies.  We provide management services to our state agencies through a careful definition of process or project needs.  Once defined, we lead the selection of resources and formation of a team effort using the most appropriate methodology to get desired results in both an Agile and practical method.  Benefits are realized from the continual improvements to our portfolio management processes, business process mapping, project management best practices and tools.  The ongoing development of PMO project portfolio management policies, quality assurance, mentoring, process improvement and project methodology training programs will ensure successful achievement of agency level program goals and objectives.

The BPM unit is responsible for setting strategic direction and motivating people to change along with identifying, governing and assessing business outcomes and building and evolving solutions.  It offers a consolidation of resources which provides greater flexibility and efficiency for the State’s IT community and agency customers.

Benefits of BPM include improving project results by better aligning business with IT and reducing project redundancies earlier; creating better and more repeatable skills; establishing the ability to cross functional and business unit boundaries; and, more fully leveraging technology investments.
